The decade of the sixties was one of unparalleled growth and development for higher education in tha Commonwealth. A few of the highlights of this publication reveal the significant progress made by the state-supported colleges and universities.
Earned degrees granted by the five regional colleges and universities, University of Kentucky, and the Community College System increased from 3,748 in 1960 to 10,718 in 1969.
Enrollments of the six state-supported institutions of higher educa- + tion and the community colleges increased from 19,856 in the 1959-60
academic year to 62,376 for the FaZZ Semester of the 1969-70 academic year.
The University of Kentucky extension centers enrolled 1,099 students 1.'n 1959-60. These centers evolved into a network of fifteen Community Colleges enrolling 10,147 students in the 1969-70 academic year.
State general fund appropriations increased from $14,163,995 in the 1959-60 academic year to $92,216,310 for 1969-70 to meet the needs of new programs, increased enrollments and new facilities at the six state-supported institutions of higher education.
Capital construction completed from 1960 through 1969 exceeded 12 million square feet in academic, laboratory, library, graduate and professional school, administrative, residential and student union facilities at the six institutions, the Community College System and the University of Louisville.
The University of Louisville through an Act of the 1968 General Assembly began receiving a state appropriation for the reduction of tuition for Kentucky students.
The 1968 General Assembly enacted legislation to establish Northern Kentucky State CoZZege in the Covington area. Northern is a trans- formation of the Community College and will enroZZ its first upper division class the Fall Semester of 1971.
The U. S. Office of Educa ion recently published figures relating to the growth in enrollment and degree productivity at the public institutions through the sixties. Based on a comparison of percentages, Kentucky public institutions exceeded the national growth for this period in enrollment and degrees conferred.
